About Happy Swimmers

The Happy Swimmers Family

The Happy Swimmers Family

Jenn Tyler, the founder of Happy Swimmers, is nothing less than a pioneer of the aquatic industry in the US. She began this venture in 1991, after realizing her passion for keeping people safe, she began the business of hiring out private lifeguards, swim instructors, and Red Cross trainers throughout the United States.

In the last 32 years, Happy Swimmers has grown into one of the most prominent and high-quality aquatic services in the US, staffing over 300 for hire lifeguards each summer and training thousands of people each year to receive their lifeguard certifications, CPR and First Aid certifications.

Hayley Church and Samuel Cooksey took over the company, adding it to their business of 12 years, Cooksey’s Lifeguard and Swim. They have worked hard to carry on the legacy of Happy Swimmers and merge it with our own passions to grow Happy Swimmers in quality and safety standards.

Our vision is to make sure that everyone knows the cruciality of having a certified lifeguard’s eyes on the pool when people are swimming and for everyone to become pool safe through swim lessons or otherwise.

Education of pool safety is and always has been our biggest priority. We work tirelessly every day to make sure that our private lifeguards provide the best services, our swim instructors teach their students to be pool safe, and our Red Cross courses teach people the skills they need to help people in an emergency.
